Just a short stroll from the Iglesia de Santa Maria is this impressive Castle and Lighthouse commanding views over the stunning coast and town and a Roman Arch/Bridge thrown in for free! There appeared to be an elevator for access, although we did not go inside.

Once again this feature stands out on the seafront and makes a lovely photograph with the bridge in the foreground. Well worth the effort of taking a pleasant stroll to view it.

The castle and lighthouse can be seen from all along the sea front and make a pleasant backdrop to the Roman Arch. The castle was completed in 1163 and lighthouse first operated in November 1853. The original plan was for the castle and church to form part of the towns defensive complex and proved useful during the War of Independence when French took over the town and a number of inhabitants were evacuated from here by English ships. The balcony area overlooking the sea gives panoramic views over the town and harbour, towards Bilbao harbour entrance and cemetery on the headland beyond Playa Ostende. The elevator on the far side next to entrance is an unattractive addition.

A lovely wander down the harbour to the castle. The castle has been renovated and is a really nice spot with good views over the sea and harbour areas. Some interesting statues and relics - but as with lots of places in this area, very little translated into English. However, this will not spoil your enjoyment of a lovely focal point of any visit to this town.
